WHAT'S NOT TO; HARSH MUM LEFT IN TEARS AFTER HER SNAPS CAUSE OFFENCE; Mum Alyson, 33, shed three stone through healthy living but when she posted before and after pics on Facebook, one misery complained about 'nudity'. We ask,...

Byline: BART DICKSON reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

A BEAUTY therapist who posted pictures of her slimline figure on Facebook after she shed three stone was reduced to tears when someone complained that she was encouraging nudity.

Alyson Larkin's unhealthy lifestyle led to her weight soaring.

The pretty mum-of-one lived on microwave meals and takeaways and was drinking five cans of coke a day as well as the occasional glass of wine.

But she embarked on a health kick after discovering she could no longer fit into her trousers and even sold her car to force herself to take more exercise.

Alyson, 31, of Gourock, Inverclyde, lost three stone and dropped three dress sizes.

She also joined an online weight loss programme which encourages people to eat healthily and exercise.

After shedding the weight a proud Alyson shared snaps of her new slimline figure on Facebook, but an anonymous complaint was made to the website.

She said: "It actually made me cry as I felt hurt that people think I would do something wrong. How anyone could say that picture was encouraging nudity is beyond me."

Alyson's pictures show her in sports gear before and after she lost weight. There are also pictures of her in underwear but no naked snaps.

She added: "I won't stop posting my pictures because of a minority. For every person who doesn't like it there's 10 more message me on a daily basis to say they're great.

"I am proud of my body, I work hard at it and if I want to show people where a wee bit of hard work can get you I will.

"Anyone who doesn't like it can delete me from Facebook."

Alyson's friends left messages of support on her page.
